Jim Harbaugh protested and marched, released statements and said publicly at every turn that he wanted this football season to happen.

Don Brown looked down, then back up. His lips pursed as his mask sat below his chin. Penn State quarterback Will Levis was in the end zone celebrating. Brown was left to watch and wonder. About what was next after the final Nittany Lions touchdown to seal a 27-17 Michigan loss. About how to fix a defense that again showed porous holes. And surely, about his job security.

Senior Andrew Stueber is now the most experiences player on Michigan's battered offensive line.

Ed Warinner said Wednesday, not for the first time, that Andrew Stueber was likely leading Michigan’s right tackle competition in August 2019 when he went down with a torn ACL. 

Stueber, at the time a junior, was competing with a green sophomore in Jalen Mayfield. Neither had played much — Juwann Bushell-Beatty had been the largely unquestioned starter over the two years prior. When Stueber got hurt, it meant Mayfield would be thrown into the fire.

Erick All didn't have any drops in Saturday's win over Rutgers.

Cade McNamara relieved Joe Milton and led Michigan to a triple-overtime win on Saturday.

After nearly three-and-a-half games of misery, this was something different. Something to grab onto and hold tight, and hope that the 2020 season could be salvaged, if not in the form of Michigan’s record than at least in the form of its dignity, and its future at quarterback.
